In a new interview, Dr. James Lacatski, who headed a prior U.S. government investigation into Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP), affirmed that the U.S. government possesses a craft of unknown origin and has access to its interior, reports liberationtimes.com.
A newly released book co-authored by Lacatski, who led the Advanced Aerospace Weapon System Applications Program (AAWSAP), dedicated to the study of UAP, reveals more details about his tenure with the AATIP and the evidence he gathered that supports the existence of extraterrestrial technology.
He said that the U.S. government has in its possession a craft that is not made by humans and that it has been studying its structure and functions.
“We do have a craft that is not ours, that is not made by us, that we have been able to recover,” he said. “We have been able to get access to the interior of this craft and we have been able to learn some things about it.”
Dr. Lacatski did not specify where or when the craft was recovered, or what it looks like. He also did not disclose what kind of information the government has learned from it, or whether it is still operational. He said that he is bound by a non-disclosure agreement and that revealing too much could compromise national security.
However, he hinted that the craft exhibits some of the same characteristics that have been observed in other UFO sightings reported to the AATIP, such as hypersonic speeds, extreme maneuverability, and anti-gravity propulsion.
Lacatski asserted that there is no reason for humanity to fear potential non-human intelligence, provided that the human species discovers its full capabilities, stating:
“If full human capabilities were known to us right now, it is not something that we need to fear.”
“Our capabilities have never been fully revealed. And we’re still learning; we’ve got a long way to evolve still.”
Dr. Lacatski said that he left the Pentagon because of a lackluster official response to the AATIP’s findings, and their unwillingness to address potential risks from UFOs.
He said that he hopes that by speaking out, he can encourage more people — and authorities — to overcome long-standing stigmas and talk more openly about these mysterious aircraft, some of which may pose a bigger threat than we realize.
Addressing the aspect where private contractors might potentially hold craft of unknown or non-human origin, Lacatski remarked
“I can say if there’s heavy investment of contractor capital, their overhead money into technologies, and they’ve been given these technologies, they’re gonna hang on to them.
“It’s as if someone’s saying, ‘Hey, wait a minute, we’ve invested a lot of our personal resources into research,’ and this sentiment applies to every topic.
“It’s going to be difficult to pry loose technology. When something’s been given over, and a private company has invested their money, their stockholders’ money into research.
“So that’s an entirely different aspect.”
One such contractor understood to have alleged craft of unknown or non-human origin is Lockheed Martin.
